February has been deemed "Heart" month and with a focus on healthy hearts, what I see advertised in mainstream media are two things: keeping your heart healthy and chocolate for your Valentine. Hmm...that conflicts just a little.
The ads seem mainly directed at the physical health of the heart muscle, and I'm not disputing the importance of that, however, what about the mood, emotion and spirit of your heart?
A holistically healthy heart takes into consideration how mood and mental state affect the health of the heart, how what you take in whether it be food or feelings, has an impact. When your heart "feels"positive and you are feeding your body well it beats out a healthy thump. Depression and anxiety can quicken or slow the heart, panic and stress make it beat a little faster and then there is the food we ingest and the activities we participate in...it all makes a difference.
The health of our Spirit plays a part as well. Are we connected to that aspect of ourselves, listening to the messages that Spirit shares and acting upon them? Are we staying in tune with our spiritual needs as well as our emotional and physical desires?
Through February lets explore the link between holistic health sessions and how they impact upon the health of your heart's physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. I will include some positive steps you can take towards healing your heart to it's natural vitality.
